I think the ideal behaviour would be if you could swap a snapshot with the HEAD state of the partition, effective on the next unmount-mount cycle. Then restoring the system to a snapshot state would consist of swapping that snapshot into place and rebooting. You'd still have the borked former HEAD state of the system in a snapshot, which you could delete at will. You're not likely to get more convenient than that.
